Butter show? I don't think I've heard it called this or the story behind it. Do tell.

No real story per se, I'm afraid...it's more of a description of the 5-25 Mosque show, which like no other I know, is smooth like butter.

The show has this incredibly mellow vibe to it--all the songs, especially in the first set, sound effortless, and flow beautifully. Listen to the "They Love Each Other" for a good example, or the Scarlet>Fire.

As noted above, Donna does indeed sound more in synch vocally than usual...blending much better w/Jerry, instead of singing "over" him as she often does.

It's a great show--if not a "scorcher", like some others later in the year or earlier that month...but I think you'll agree after listening, that it's like butter.

ahh the mosque, i once lived a block from this cool little theater now known as the landmark , and happened to attend that show, sadly enough i remembered very little of it by the next day and even less now....but i have it on cd and it is a great show.

I listened to it last night to see if I could detect any butter and sure enough it was 100% pure organic butter. Smooooooooth. Good description. I was hoping it wasn't like the mescaline show and they were all hopped up on pats of butter.
